About me

Hello and welcome,

Are you looking for a counsellor because you have a specific issue you would like to address? Or do you just have a sense that something isn't quite right, that life isn't quite working out for you in the way that you had hoped?

I offer a safe space for you to come and explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences and to help you make sense of things.

I am experienced in working one to one with young people (18+) and adults and with a wide spectrum of issues including trauma, identity, bereavement, anxiety and depression. I offer both short and long term counselling.

The way I work:
I integrate a traditional talking therapy approach with creative interventions and mindfulness techniques.
If appropriate to your needs, we might work in a solution focussed way, helping you to identify goals, build resources and develop skills; supporting you to become your best self, whatever that means to you.  
My work is informed by Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, an approach developed to heal both developmental and single incident trauma and that integrates somatic therapies (working with physical sensations and movement), neuroscience (the functioning of the nervous system), attachment theory (the impact of our early relationships on our development) and cognitive approaches (our belief systems).  This is a very safe, collaborative way of working and many clients have found it effective.

At all times we will work together, at your pace and in a way that feels comfortable for you.

I am a member of and abide by BACP ethical guidelines.

Have a look at my website. Send me an email or call me.  We can discuss your needs and I can then help you make a decision about next steps...

I look forward to hearing from you,

Nicola
